Daft Punk & Fatboy Slim have got it done for me recently.

Check out "Right Here, Right Now" by Fatboy Slim
and basically the whole Alive album by Daft Punk
also most Pendulum is high pace/high energy.

Another few I just thought of were Girl Talk, Tiesto & Basement Jaxx.

You need remixes. Try dubstep, specifically dabears. You can download their music for free online. Or try some hardstyle music that has a constant upbeat to it. :)

I really enjoy the podrunner podcasts. They are a mix of songs that generally range from 120 to 180 beats per minute, mostly techno and dance. I also like Daft Punk and Katy Perry.

I'd say one thing people also need to definitely take into consideration is what kind of music or energy they want from their music selections and what sort of exercise/event they're using the music for.

For example before I play basketball I'd like to get really hype way beyond a normal workout so I'd have a certain type of music there vs. not having too high of a tempo if I'm say on the elliptical keeping a steady slow pace for a long period of time as a high pace music might make me go quicker then usual thus not being able to stay on as long. So I'd say depending on what you're doing try and gauge it around that. I also notice that if there's songs I know well I tend to sing along to them, which prevents me from breathing correctly. Just a few things to take into consideration.
March 19, 2011 12:36 PM
This is a great topic! I'm definitely stealing all of these suggestions. Here are a couple of my favourites for the exercise bike or walking:

1. Back Against the Wall -- Cage the Elephant
2. Cute Without the E -- Taking Back Sunday
3. Liar -- Taking Back Sunday
4. Shake It -- Metro Station
5. Breaking -- Anberlin
6. *Fin -- Anberlin (great song to finish off a workout with. It builds to really high intensity then gives you a little cool-off period at the end)
7. We Didn't Start the Fire -- Billy Joel
8. Decatur -- Sufjan Stevens
9. Raphael -- Carla Bruni
10. Cinderella -- Steven Curtis Chapman
11. Hey Soul Sister -- Glee Version/Train, whatever floats your boat. I personally love the acappela backing for Glee's rendition, it gives it a cool vibe.
12. Slow Down - The Academy Is...

I definitely agree with zacherybinx above. Choose the type of music that will get you the right amount of hyped. When I'm walking, I tend to favour faster pieces with a steady beat, but for biking I'd prefer something a little more relaxed.
